Perhaps the most traditional of all Luxembourg meat dishes is Judd mat Gaardebounen, smoked collar of pork with broad beans.

Bouneschlupp is a traditional Luxemburgish green bean soup with potatoes, bacon, and onions.

Gromperekichelcher are made from a mixture of grated potatoes, chopped onions, parsley, egg, flour and salt, then shaped into flattened patties and fried.

Kuddelfleck is tripe, coated in breadcrumbs and fried, then served with either a white wine or a spicy tomato sauce.

Luxembourg is landlocked, so traditional fish dishes are based on what swims in fresh water rather than in the sea. Trout, pike and crayfish are some of the most common fishes you’ll find in Luxembourg's restaurants.

Paschtéit or Bouchée à la Reine are puffy, large pastry cases filled with chicken and mushroom, and mixed together with a creamy or béchamel sauce.

Pâté is a common paste made from meat, spread on bread and often eaten with pickle.

You’ll find quetschentaart, which is an open plum tart, in bakeries all over Luxembourg in the autumn after the fruit has ripened and been harvested.

Languages and Local Dialect

 Luxembourg is characterised by the practice and the recognition of three official languages: French, German, and the national language Luxembourgish, established in law in 1984. These three languages are also referred to as the three administrative languages.

Upon the founding of the country, French enjoyed the greatest prestige, and therefore gained preferential use as the official and administrative language. German was used in the political field to comment on the laws and the ordinances in order to make them comprehensible to everyone. At the primary-school level, teaching was limited to German, while French was taught in secondary education. The law of 26 July 1843, reinforced bilingualism by introducing the teaching of French in primary school.
